The Seventh Sign
1988 (1998) - Columbia TriStar Home Video

review by Todd Doogan, special to The Digital Bits

Enhanced for 16x9 TVs

Film Rating: C
It's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine. Demi Moore stars as a young mother to be, who figures out that Jesus Christ is back, and he ain't preaching brotherhood and love -- he's ushering in the End Of Days. An interesting thriller, but nothing to jump up and down about.

Disc Ratings (Video/Audio/Extras): B-/B+/D-
Pretty standard disc. The video is not as clear as I would have hoped - there's minor artifacting throughout the film. Not distracting, but if you look for it, it's there. The sound is nice, but there aren't any extras, not even a trailer.

Overall Rating: C
The movie is watchable, but not as gripping as it could be. The disc looks okay, and sounds better, but don't expect extras here.

Specs and Features

97 mins, R, letterboxed widescreen (2.35:1), 16x9 enhanced, pan & scan, dual-sided, singled-layered, Amaray keep case packaging, film-themed menus, scene access (28 chapters), languages: English & French (DD 2.0), subtitles: English and French, Close Captioned

Bottom line

Fans of Demi Moore will note that this is a pre-boob job Demi -- so if that matters to you, she's naked in it. Sure she is wearing a fake pregnant stomach during said nude scene, but she's naked. Me? I could care less. I found the movie a bit predictable, and slow. The DVD is substandard from what I'm grown accustomed to from Columbia/Tristar. It's a rental.
